A DIY body sensor kit for app developers and tinkerers

A DIY body sensor kit for app developers and tinkerers | Maker Stuff | Scoop.it

A new body sensor kit allows developers to build new prototypes and projects that measure heart rate, skin conductance, movement and muscle activation. 

A hardware and software kit called BITalino includes a microcontroller unit, a battery block and a few different different physiological sensor modules that can be broken off and used individually or purchased in the form of an all-in-one board for prototyping.

Sensors in the kit include can track muscle activation (electromyography), skin conductance (electrodermal activity), heart rate (electrocardiography), movement (accelerometry) and ambient light.

BITalino’s developers say it can be used to “support classroom activities, interface with other devices, or perform rapid prototyping of end-user applications in the field of physiological computing.”

It comes at a price of 149 Euros, or about $200
